“The Lodge intends to advise all Officers of these abnormally dangerous conditions and their rights under Section 20 of the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act. That section provides that the “quitting of labor by an employee or employees in good faith because of abnormally dangerous conditions of work at the place of employment shall not be deemed to be a strike.” We will not advise them to engage in a work stoppage of a general nature, but if asked we will suggest that they return to their normal duty assignments away from this building. “
